Life Ball is the world’s most extravagant HIV/AIDS benefit. Held annually in the beautiful historical city of Vienna, Austria, Life Ball combines the great Viennese Ball tradition with glamorous, outlandish performances and inspirational speeches. Organized by AIDS LIFE, Life Ball has raised more than $22 million during the past 19 years for HIV/AIDS projects worldwide through partnerships with amfAR, the William J. Clinton Foundation, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and UNAIDS. Through the Life Ball, AIDS LIFE has been a major supporter of amfAR’s TREAT Asia Pediatric HIV/AIDS Initiative.

Past Life Ball attendees have included President Bill Clinton, Sharon Stone, Heidi Klum, Eva Longoria, Liza Minnelli, Elton John, Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue, Janet Jackson, and many others. Each year, top fashion designers are invited to take part in an extravagant live fashion show. These designers have included Jean-Paul Gaultier, John Galliano, Roberto Cavalli, Donatella Versace, Vivienne Westwood, Diane Von Furstenberg, Kenneth Cole and Calvin Klein.

Let’s give it up for Deborah and Jon. The kids can still seriously sing.
